This is my last night to write from French Lick.  Today was the main event, the Car Show.  Over 350 cars were on the show field, mostly on the parking lot of the hotel.  Fortunately, the Midgets were on grass and near a few trees.  Some might suggest the we had the best spot.  We arrived and were immediately joined by a few other Midgets, including another 61 Midget. that was recently fully restored and came from Milan, Mi (where Amie lived about 20 years ago).  Tim and Nancy are delightful people and may have a solution for one of my issues with my Midget.  But more on that another time.

The one part of the day that will be talked about for years was the temperature - it was in the 90's with significant humidity.  Everyone was very uncomfortable and many started leaving the show field early.  Barbara did come and take a look around but left about noon partially dehydrated.  I was able to buy her a new MG Girls shirt first and then borrowed a golf cart to take her back to the hotel.

The rest of the day was spent at the pool before preparing for the evening banquet.  The highlight of the Banquet was the awards ceremony.  The Peachtree MG Registry was well represented among the winners including 1st in class for Tim Gaffney, Bill Gillson and Dan Bosso  Altogether the club took 9 awards for their cars and one in Photography.  In fact only a couple of us didn't win, myself among that group.  (Just so you all know, I didn't expect to win anything.)

Tomorrow, we are off for the first leg of our trip home.  We hope and plan to be in Lebanon, KY on Thursday night to sample some local bourbon at the two distilleries in town.

Until tomorrow night.
